Re: VMap QL

He stills sends to Europe, I got some bits recently. I could probably ask for one with my next (imminent) order and then forward it to you.

Re: Microdrive felt pads

I didn't get anything. Some other emails didn't get through earlier this week with no warning to the sender and nothing in spam. Let me know a string of 5 letters or so from your email address and I'll see if I can search for it.

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

That thread on Sinclair ZX world was very helpful Derek (I posted there recently about how I had to 'trick' my QEPII Eprom programmer into reading an original IF1 ROM), but I think the ROM-el must be the way to go now.
